Certainly one of the better lagers. Very close to what you are used in English pubs when poured into a pint. Clear colour, mild flavour, no hangover. Better than many european bottled beers. Nice big bottle as well. Compared with other African beers the best (followed by Star). So Ghana score should be 5/5.

Compared to Star, Club, and ABC Gulder can be the best. I say can because a lack of refrigeration causes a lot of inconsistency. When fresh Gulder is a modestly flavored ale. When skunked itís not great but does its job. Though it is not as good at its best as Gulder I chose Club when possible because at least in Accra it is decent and a lot more consistent .

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
625 bottle, available all over Ghana.
Liked this one a lot more than Star or Club followed by Stone Lager.
pours golden straw, white head.
aroma and flavors, sweet malts, grainy, maize like mouthfeel, pale malts, nose of wort, light touch of tropical fruits and mild citrus bitterness; mango, orange.
Bittersweet finish, not bad but like every other beer in Ghana, itís nothing too impressive.

Grassy hops and light, sweet and sour caramel malts. Acidic and resinous as it goes down the throat.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2004 Thanks to Tyler for this!
Golden clear body with a large frothy white head. Aroma is corn and soapy hops. Slightly sweet and watery. Because this has no real flavor, it is very drinkable. Comparable to a cheaper lager from the U.S.
(Don't let this warm up!!!!!)

Bottle at Ghana Cafe in DC. This one is a step above most developing world lagers, with clean, crisp lines and no off flavors. Not bad.

I love lagers and i love ones from far off places so lets rip it up! .. . pours a medium gold, great cream head, dies down to a respectable lager low, lacing is low but constant .. . smell of grain, hay, sour hay and giraffe .. . quite a tartness, not that refreshing- grainy and a bit messy- the travel time from Ghana to infront of me hasnít done it any favours .. . Am I the only one alive who was not in the conga line?!

Iíve now tried the three primary Ghanaian lagers that Iíve seen around Accra--Star, Gulder, and Club--and I think Gulder wins pretty easily, being a *clean* beer with a hint of maltiness, and Star takes second, clearly behind Gulder and a smaller distance ahead of Club. Starís problem is a rather intense cardboard or paper mulch flavor, with a bit of grassiness. I had star while seated in the water at a pool that has a bar built in--at La Palm Royal, Accra--so thatís a situation where a beer should be the perfect "moment" or "situation beer" if there is going to be one. But no, itís just blah. Club on the other hand isnít quite so actively offensive but it had a wateriness to it that really felt limp. Gulder would be my go-to beer among lagers, but theyíre all far worse than the Ghanaian Guinness.
